Thanks for your query.

I am happy to help. Sounds like you have sensitive skin. Just stopping a cream would not cause a rash. It sounds like you are reacting to something in your environment i.e., some kind of allergen...could be soap, shampoo...etc. You could try mixing the steroid cream with the aloe vera gel 1 part to 1 part to see if this helps. If not then I would try using the steroid cream alone until the redness is under control. After that you may want to seek a consultation from a skin care expert or a Dermatologist.

I hope this has answered your question. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.
